Dental work has to take place when a cavity forms if you want to save your tooth and prevent potentially serious complications. If the problem is identified in time, you can enjoy results while only requiring a dental filling. This treatment will ultimately limit how much work is needed for your tooth, as your Riverside, CA dentist will apply a composite resin substance directly at the site of decay and leave the surrounding enamel unchanged. This material can both match your tooth structure and bond to it to provide lasting support. We should note that we are prepared to take on larger cavities that require more involved work and different restorations when needed.

Why Your Cavity Treatment Includes The Placement Of A Filling Or Crown

Either a dental filling or dental crown will be placed after decayed enamel has been removed by your dentist. How is the decision made to place one and not the other? Simply put, the answer lies in the condition of your tooth at the time of your appointment. Because it takes less time and preserves more of your enamel, a filling provides the more conservative treatment option. Unfortunately, it is not appropriate to use a filling in every instance, as there are times when more functional support is required. Protection from a crown can help for a more severe cavity. Unfortunately, when problems grow too severe because decay is not caught and treated in time, it is possible that a tooth extraction will have to take place.

Receiving Your Discreet Dental Filling

Dental fillings can be placed in just one appointment, and they can offer long-term support while also matching your tooth structure. Our practice relies on a composite resin substance when providing this kind of care. The material is applied directly where your cavity had to be removed. After being applied, the resin will harden. In addition to hardening, it bonds to your surrounding enamel to provide lasting security. Because all of this can be done in just one appointment, you can find the procedure convenient as well as discreet.
